Directions:
Bring a large pan of water with salt to boiling point. Meanwhile remove the sausage from its casing and break the meat up with your fingers. Heat the Olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the sausage and cook stirring and breaking it up with a wooden spoon for about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes until it is sizzling and beginning to brown.
Push the sausage to one side. Add the onion. Sprinkle in half the salt and push to one side again. Add the chili flakes and toast for thirty seconds then stir them in. Move the mixture to the side of the pan again and add the tomato paste and cook stirring constantly for one to two minutes until it is sizzling and caramelizing, then stir it into the sausage mixture. Ladle three cups of the salted boiling water into the skillet, stir well and bring liquid to a boil. Meanwhile, add the ziti to the pan of boiling water, stir and bring back to a boil, then cook for about 8 minutes until almost al dente. Check the sause which should not become too thick. If necessary stir in another cup of the boiling pasta water. When pasta is al dente, lift it out of the pan with a slotted spoon, drain briefly and add to simmering sauce and sausage. Mix and toss the pasta adding more cooking water if the sauce is too thick.
Remove the skillet from the heat, sprinkle the grated cheese over the past and toss to combine. Transfer to warm pasta bowls and serve.
